According to the University of Alabama at Birmingham, more than 40% of all spinal cord injuries are caused by motor vehicle accidents. If you have sustained spinal cord injuries as a result of a Louisiana car accident, you may be entitled to compensation through a Louisiana personal injury lawsuit to help you pay for surgeries, rehabilitation and long-term treatment.
Spinal cord injuries are caused by sudden blows to the spinal cord that affect one or more of the spinal cord’s vertebrae. People can experience immediate effects of spinal cord injuries or they can worsen over time as swelling tissue and bleeding impact the affected area.
The recovery for your spinal cord injuries will depend on a variety of factors including which areas of the spine were damaged, and the extent of that damage. This can mean the difference between short-term, long-term, and permanent spinal cord injuries.
If your spinal cord injuries are permanent, your lifestyle will be dramatically altered. You may be partially or completely paralyzed and in need of care for the rest of your life. Your career, marriage and family life will also likely be affected by these changes.
These types of injuries also often result in depression as you begin to learn the extent of your physical limitations. It is a good idea to speak with a therapist who is experienced in counseling patients with spinal cord trauma to help you come to terms with the emotional ramifications that usually accompany these injuries.
Even if your spinal cord injures are not permanent, you will likely encounter extensive medical bills for your rehabilitation and treatment. If your spinal cord injuries are permanent, you need to seek compensation for both your immediate medical treatment and long-term medical costs.
An experienced Louisiana personal injury attorney can look at the specifics of your accident and resulting injuries to determine the value of your personal injury case and what compensation to seek. Some considerations for your Louisiana personal injury lawsuit include:
According to the Louisiana statute of limitations laws, you only have 1 year from the date of your accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. Don’t delay. Contact a qualified Louisiana personal injury attorney today.
